Introduction. 



The publisher and those who have assisted 
him in the collection of much of the data com- 
prising this volume have frequently been met 
with the query, what is a " Blue Book?" This 
work is the answer. 

Having been mistaken for book agents, 
received as such by many, and denied an inter- 
view by others whom it was absolutely neces- 
sary to see in order to obtain data needed in the 
preparation of the ''Calling and Address List," a 
feature peculiar to this work, the issuance of this 
volume has been delayed longer than was anti- 
cipated. Such delay is, however, in no way 
the fault of the publisher or his printers. 

The Blue Book is a necessity in metropolitan 
life, because it forms the only reliable social 
guide for well-regulated households. It is a 



y\^ 



iv Houston Blue Book. 

useful and concisely tabulated compendium of 
all social functions, and is as necessary in the 
home as the business directory is in the office or 
store, and all intelligent individuals who con- 
sider the duties of life worth observance provide 
themselves with such a book of reference. 

In every fin de Steele city of both Europe and 
America a Blue Book is given a welcome place 
in all the best families. It finds no lodgment 
elsewhere. 

It is not intended that this work shall be a list 
of "blue bloods," nor does the publisher desire 
to figure as a social censor, but being familiar 
with such publications elsewhere, and believing 
the social life of the two cities needs such an aid 
because of the fast approaching metropolitan 
proportions and ideas of each, the work was 
undertaken and is now presented to its patrons. 

The publisher gratefully acknowledges the 
promptness and kindness with which many who 
have seen and known elsewhere the benefits and 
conveniences of a Blue Book have come to his

"assistance and by personal letters of approval, 
and otherwise, have aided and encouraged the 
publication. 

The special "Calling and Address List" con- 
tains a majority of residents, it is believed, who 
are entitled to the claim and recognition of 
"society," if such a fixed fact there be. "So- 
ciety" is altogether too elastic and flexible for 
the attainment of perfection in this list. Its 
representation, however, is as select, complete 
and correct as careful inquiry under existing 
conditions can make an attempt of the kind. If 
there are any, and undoubtedly there are many, 
entitled to mention herein whose names by 
chance have been omitted, it must be attributed 
rather to the extraordinary difficulties attending 
the obtaining of data, than to any idea of exclu- 
sion. With each recurring edition the objects 
and purports of a Blue Book will be better under- 
stood, and a more perfect and satisfactory repre- 
sentation reached. Margins have been left for 
additions and interlineations of the names, ad-

dresses, etc., of friends not found herein. The 
''Social Code" may prove a pleasant reminder to 
polite memory and gentle breeding. 

The publisher desires especially to call the 
attention of the patrons of this book to the names 
and firms mentioned herein under the caption 
of ''Business Reference" with the hope and the 
wish that a close and continued acquaintance 
may be mutually profitable and pleasureable. 

This is the first Blue Book ever issued in the 
State of Texas. The publisher hopes that it 
may find the friends here that similar volumes 
have ever found in enterprising cities. It is 
copyrighted and will appear annually, or as 
often as the growth and changes of the city make 
its publication advisable. 



Note — Blue Books have also been copyrighted for 
San Antonio, Austin, Waco and other cities, and will 
be respectively issued by the publisher of this volume 
as soon as the necessary data may be obtained, and 
will be supplied to subscribers only.

The Club is named for Mr. Richard Mansfield, 
the actor. The object of the Club, in addition 
to the entertainment of its members, is the study 
of eminent dramatists and the occasional public 
presentation of some of their best works to their 
friends and the public. The Club since its 
organization has rendered with much credit 
some difficult plays and the several members 
have in some instances acquitted themselves in 
manner equal, almost, to the most talented pro- 
fessionals. The Clubs accumulations are for 
the purpose of providing a library fund.

The £a3ies Keaaing Club. 

This is the oldest of the existing ladies literary 
clubs in the city, being now in its tenth year. 
The club meets every Tuesday at 4 p. m. in the 
Parish house of Christ Church. It is the hope 
and desire of the club that, during the year 1896, 
quarters sufficiently commodious and convenient 
for the common use of all the literary clubs of 
the city may be obtained. 

The object of the club is to study general 
literature and the pleasure of social intercourse. 
The membership is limited to fifty. 

After two years study the club has just finished 
Shakespeare and will next take up the dialect 
writers of New England. The different studies 
taken up usually require each a term of three 
months.

T 



he Social Code. 



The social code, though sometimes extreme in its formality, is 
founded everywhere on kind feeling- and good sense. The con- 
ventionalities of society restrain and direct merely to remove fric- 
tion and assist life to freer and easier movement. The rules here 
given are intended to be at once concise and comprehensive, and 
are sufficient lor all ordinary purposes of social intercourse. 

Introductions— & gentleman desiring to be introduced to a 
lady must first obtain permission, after which the following form- 
ula may be used: "Mr. Arthur desiies to be presented to Miss 
Angell." If the lady making the introduction desires the mutual, 
acquaintance of the parties, she says: "This is Mr. Harmon, Mrs. 
Knfield. It gives me pleasure to present him to you." The mar- 
ried lady replies according to her feeling, and. of "course, in terms 
of polite conversation. If she is pleased to know Mr. Harmon, 
she says so cordially and frankly, at the same time thanking the 
presentee, who withdraws at once. 

A young lady in the same circumstances politely recognizes 
the gentleman, bows and smiles, using the name "of the new 
acquaintance. The gentleman, alone can express gratification, 
adding such compliments as the occasion seems to demand. The 
introduced parties may be as friendly as they please but excess- 
ive cordiality on first acquaintance is not to be commended. 

The etiquette of hand-shaking is simple. A mau has no right 
to take a lady's hand till it is offered. He has even less right to 
pinch or retain it. Two ladies shake hands gently and softly. A 
young lady gives her hand, but does not shake a gentleman's un- 
less she is his friend. A lady should always rise to give her hand; 
a gentlemen, of course, never dares to do so seated. On introduc- 
tion in a room, a married lady generally offers her hand; a young 
lady not. 

In a ball-room, where the introduction is to dancing, not to 
friendship, you never shake hands, and as a general rule, an intro- 
duction is not followed by shaking hands, only by a bow. It per- 
haps may be laid down that the more public the place of introduc- 
tion, the less hand-shaking takes place; but if the introduction 
be paiticular, if it be accompanied by personal recommendation, 
such as, "I want you to know my friend Jones," or if Jones comes 
with a letter of presentation, then you gV Jones your hand, and 
warmly too. Lastly, it is the privilege oi a superior to offer or 
withhold his or her hand, so that an inferior should neve 1 " put his 
forward first. 



138 Houston Blue Book. 

If the difference in age between two ladies and two gentlemen 
be unmistakable, the younger is presented to the elder. If there 
is an admitted supeiiority, the disparity in age is unobserved. 
The unknown person is presented to the man of greater fame 
without question. 

The single lady is introduced to the married lady, and the sin- 
gle gentleman to the married, other things being equal. 

Persons born and reared in the best society never make a hasty 
presentation or introduction. 

Introduction should be considered wholly unnecessary to a 
pleasant conversation. Ever}' person snould feel that he is, at 
least for the time, upon a social equality with every guest who 
is present. That a person was bidden to the entertainment 
proves that the host so considers him, and the acceptance of the 
invitation levels him, for the time, either up or down to the social 
grade of all whom he may meet, no matter at what estimate he 
may hold himself when elsewhere. A lady or gentlemen must 
conduct himself or herself, while remaining in the house, as if 
there were no more exalted society than that which is present. 

Salutations . — A well-bred person bows the moment he recog- 
nizes an acquaintance. According to the rules of good society 
everywhere, every one who has been introduced to you is entitled 
to this mark of respect. A bow does not entail a calling acquaint- 
ance; to neglect it shows neplect of early education. 

In thoroughfares where persons are constantly passing, gen- 
tlemen keep to the left of a lady, without regard to the wall, in 
order to protect her from the jostling elbows of the unmat.nerly, 
but in doing so, either day or night, or under any circumstances, 
it is highly improper for "a gentleman to take a lady's arm and 
steer her as he might a barrow. Such vulgarity is never practiced 
among well-bred gentlemen. For obvious reasons, a gentleman 
never takes a lady's arm. 

A gentleman walking with a lady returns a bow made to her 
(lifting his hat not too far from his head), although the one bow- 
ing is an entire stranger to him. 

It is civility to return a bow, even if you do not know the one 
who is bowing to you. 

Should any one wish to avoid a bowing acquaintance with a 
person who has once been properly introduced, he may do so by 
looking aside or dropping the eyes as the person approaches; for 
if their eyes meet there is no alternative. 

Bowing once on a public promenade is all that civility requires. 
At the second meeting, if you catch the eye of your acquaintance, 
smile slightly. If the gentleman is an acquaintance, it is better 
to avert the eyes. 

A lady may permit a gentleman who is walking with her to 
carry any very small parcel that she has, but never more than 
one. 

A lady cannot take the arms of two gentlemen, nor should 
two ladies take each one arm of a gentleman, "sandwiching" him, 
as it were. 



The Social Code. 139 



Gentlemen do not smoke when driving- or walking with ladies. 
nor on promenades much frequented. 

A married lady should always extend her hand to a stranger 
brought to her house by a common friend, as an evidence of her 
cordial welcome. When an introduction is for dancing, there is no 
shaking of hands. 

A gentleman, when stopped by a lady, does not allow her to 
stand while talking- with him, but offers "to turn and walk with 
her. 

When a gentleman joins a lady on the street, turning to walk 
with her, he is not obliged to escort her home. He can take his 
leave without making an apology. 

Never give the cut direct, unless for some inexcusable rude- 
ness. It is better to meet a recognition coldly. 

A lady may recognize a gentleman who has been formal!}- pre- 
sented to her. even when he cannot recall her face, on account of 
difference of appearance made by the change from gaslight to day- 
light . His acknowledgment of her recognition must be as respect- 
ful as to a valued friend. 

The same formalities obtain at entertainments. The gentle- 
man who is a formal acquaintance, patiently waits for the lady 
guest to recognize his presence. 

Hand-shaking is falling into disuse for ordinary calls. 

A lady never accompanies a gentleman to the door of the 
drawing-- rooni, much lej«s to the vestibule, unless she has a pro- 
found respect for him. She introduces him to no one unless there 
is a special reason for the formality, but he converses with her 
guests as if he had met them before. 

No after-recognition is warranted between gentlemen, or 
between ladies, and certainly not between a lady and gentleman, 
until they shall meet again in the drawing-room, when the gift of 
mutual speech is resumed. 

If the parties desire to be presented to each other, the oppor- 
tunity is afforded them at these casual meetings. The hostess 
cannot easily refuse this formality if she be asked to perform it; 
and, if the acquaintance be mutually agreeable, it is well; but if 
not, the lady can terminate it speedily between herself and a gen- 
tleman. 

A gentleman always lifts his hat when offering service to a 
lady, as in restoring her fan or handkerchief, or in opening a door 
that she may pass before him. She is expected simply to bow her 
acknowledgment. 

Str-angers in the City. — It is a rule among people of quality to 
call on persons newly arrived in the city. It is contrary to foreign 
social usage, but American society approves the custom. 

In such cases introductions are not needed. The resident 
ladies call between two and five o'clock, send in their cards with 
those of their husbands, fathers or brothers, and a cordial inter- 
view follows. This call should be returned within a week, or an 
explanation sent. If the call is simply returned by a card, it is 



140 Houston Bluk Book. 

understood that the strangers prefer solitude, or have reasons for 
not receiving' visitors. 

A gentleman should not make a first call upon the ladies of 
the family of a newcomer without an introduction or an invita- 
tion. His lady friend or kinswoman may leave his card, and he 
mav receive an invitation, verbal or written, to make the new 
acquaintance. Under such circumstances, the usual formality of 
introduction mav be made by his second visiting card, which he 
will send in to announce himself at the time of his call, provided 
he pays his respects to the new household unaccompanied by a 
common friend. 

Visiting and Visiting-cards for Ladies.— The visiting-card 
conveys a subtle and unmistakable meaning. It can express per- 
fect breeding. It is the safest herald of an introduction for a 
stranger. Its text should be fine and its engraving a plain script, 
or plain Roman capitals, now so popular, and immaculately white. 

In every case where there is no title, there should be the pre- 
fix "Mrs." or "Miss," the name being in clear letters of medium 
size. 

Letters of introduction are not so much used as formerly. An 
acquaintance to be formed between strangers may be arranged by 
card, where personal presentation is inconvenient. The intro- 
ducing lady writes on the upper left-hand corner of her own vis- 
iting card "the formula: "Introducing Mrs. Charles Browne." 

This card is inclosed in an envelope of fine quality, with that 
of the lady desiring the introduction, aud sent by post or messen- 
ger. The" lady who receives the two cards must call in person, or, 
if this be impossible, some member of the family must call, or a 
letter be sent by special messenger to explain the omission. Noth- 
ing less thaw this can be done without offending the introducing 
party. 

If the call is made upon the sender of the two cards, not more 
than three daws should intervene between this courtesy and the 
introduction, unless an "at home" day is mentioned either on the 
visiting card or during the interview. If no special courtesies 
are extended, and the introduced lady resides at a distance, she 
must leave a card with P. P. C. {Pom prendre conge) written on it 
to give information of her departure; but if the acquaintance has 
gone no further than one call each, she need not call again, and 
her leave-taking card closes the courtesy. 

Altera personal introduction, the Oldest resident may, if she 
choose, leave a card, which must be similarly acknowledged within 
a week, unless a visiting day is engraved or written on the card of 
the first caller, when that s'pecial occasion cannot be overlooked 
without a return card or written apology. No further visiting is 
necessary, unless mutually convenient or agreeable. 

When a ladv changes her residence, she may leave her cat d, 
with her new address .upon those to whom she owes calls, or send 
it by post. If her new residence is beyond the limits of her old 
visiting range, or in a disagreeable thoroughfare, her first card on 
formal occasions should not include a call. 



The Social Code. 14 r 

- A lady leaving- for the summer, if the season is well advanced 
sends her own and her family's P. P. C. cards, with her temporary 
address, by mail, unless she takes leave at an accidental inter- 
view. When she returns, she sends out her cards. Her "at home'' 
day will be found in the Blue Book. 

A young lady about to be married leaves her card, without 
calling, about three weeks before the event, accompanied by her 
mother's or her chaperon's card, the names not being eugraved 
together. An independent address is left for each lady member of 
the household which she honors. 

If a death occurs in the household of a friend a card with anv 
appropriate sentiment written upon it, or a bouquet of cut flow- 
ers and a card are sent directly, The same gentle recognition of 
any felicitous event, such as the birth of a child, a private wed- 
ding, the entering of a new house, etc., is a pleasant but not rigid 
etiquette among friends and admirers. 

Among acquaintances, the card only, with no intruding 
expressions upon it, is left, either with or without flowers— usually 
without when a sorrow has fallen upon a family. This card may 
be that of a stranger, even; but it is never sent, and is always left 
in person, or is carried by a special messenger, as a more delicate 
recognition of the grave event. 

This etiquette is not a necessity; it is only a proof of gentle 
breeding and refined manners, and is growing in special favor. 

Cards are always first left, in the hall when entering a recep- 
tion. This custom makes the debtor and creditor list of the enter- 
tainer easier to arrange, because announcing names is rarely done 
in American cities; and even if it were, in large cities the mem- 
ory must be excellent that can retain all the faces of those who 
accept these courtesies. Provided an invitation to a party or a 
reception is necessarily declined after having been accepted, cards 
are sent by messenger upon the same evening, and an explanatory 
note is forwarded the next day, when more leisure will make its 
excuses and its regrets comprehensible. 

An invitation card and a reply to it may go by post, but a card 
of sympathy or of congratulation can not. This must be left in 
person, if possible; otherwise, by special messenger. 

The husband's card should accompany that of his wife upon 
all formal occasions, but it is no longer stylish for both names to 
be engraved upon the same card, except "directly after marriage. 
The mother's and the eldest daughter's names are'always engraved 
on the same card during the first season of the young "lady's 
appearance in society, and afterward, if agreeable, in the follow- 
ing form : 

Mrs. Henry Brigham. 
Miss Brigham. 

No. — Fannin street. 

If there is more than one daughter in society, "Misses Brig- 
ham" is the proper form to use. When a son has entered societv, 
his mother leaves his card with her husband's and her own. to sig- 



142 Houston Blue Book. 

nify that it is expected he will be included in the uext season^ 
invitations. After he receives one invitation from a lady, he is 
presumed to be capable of managing his own social matters by 
making his partv calls and leaving his own card and address 

Not longer than a week must elapse before the cards of all 
who have been invited, whether the invitation was accepted or 
not, are left by some members of the family, upon both host and 
hostess, and also upon anv one for whom the entertainment may 
have been given. A single ladv member of the family may per- 
form this social duty of returning cards of thanks and congratu- 
lations upon the success of the fete. 

Gentlemen cannot assist in these social arrangements, and 
thus relieve the ladies of the family. They may. however, leave a 
lady's card at a house of sorrow, but not after a festivity. 

Card Etiquette and Visiting Customs for Gentlemen.— A gen- 
tleman having been introduced to a lady may be uncertain whether 
she desires to continue the acquaintance. If he wishes it, he 
leaves a card, and her mother or chaperon sends an invitation to 
visit the family, or to an entertainment, after which he is expected 
to call and pay his respects. If the list of the lady's acquaintance 
be already too extensive, no notice need be taken of the card, and 
he will wait for further acquaintance until he meets the family 
ao-ain If he be introduced by card or by letter, he calls upon the 
ladv inquires for the ladies of the family, and sends in his own 
card' carefully addressed, along with that which introduces him. 
He is received if the introducing party be properly respected. 

When a gentleman is presented to a lady, the presentation is 
understood to be complimentary, and she may simply say. "Thank 
you " without asking for a continuance of the acquaintance. When 
he meets her again, he must await her recognition, without seem- 
ing to do so When she bows he can express his thanks by his 
maimer If she is pleased with his address or his position, she 
may ask him to call upon her. As a well-bred unmarried young 
lady cannot do this, the young gentleman must bide his time by 
leaving his-card, as before intimated. 

This arrangement renders the making of acquaintances an 
easv affair, provided it is agreeable to both persons, and it is a wall 
of defense against strange and unwelcome visitors. However 
unpleasant the result may be of an attempt to make a laay's 
acquaintance in this manner, every true gentleman will recognize 
the necessity of barriers across the sacred threshold of home. 

Invitations to parties balls, receptions and other functions 
should be answered, and then there can be no misunderstanding. 
A gentleman, introducing another by card, sends his own with 
that of the person introduced. It may be sent by post, and its 
reception must be recognized within three days, or an explanation 
and an offer of courtesies to the stranger must be sent by special 
messenger. After this the acquaintance may continue, or may 
cease if the receiver of the introductory card deem no further civil- 
ity necessary to the presenting person. 



The Social Code. 143 

A gentleman may leave his card for a bereaved friend, or in 
other delicate ways signify his sympathy, but unless the friend- 
ship be a very familiar one, he should not write to him of the 
bereavement, or speak to him of it when thev meet. 

A gentleman never makes a formal call without asking to see 
all the ladies of the family. He sends in or leaves his card for 
each individual. If he is calling upon a young ladv who is a guest 
in the household with whom he has no acquaintance, he must ask 
to see the hostess at the same time, and also send her his card. 
The hostess of his friend may decline interrupting his call with 
her presence, but it is considered elegant and hospitable for her to 
descend before his call terminates, to assure him that her guest's 
friends are welcome to her house. 

General Directions for Cards and Calling.— A. call in person 
should not be returned by a card. 

After cards have been left once in a season, thev need not be 
left again, excepting after an invitation, or upon a guest stopping 
in the house. 

A gentleman, invited by a lady to call on her, cannot, without 
showing her great discourtesy, neglect to pav the call within a 
week. He is not obliged to repeat it. or to do more than leave his 
card at her door. 

One cannot return the calls of elderlv ladies, or even their 
equals in age, by leaving cards at the doof . It is not considered 
respectful. If the cards of i ersons much vounger are left after 
hospitalities extended to them, one is at liberty to make a card 
serve for a return call. 

Calls are due to the newly married, and also to the parents 
who have sent the invitations. 

Turning the upper right hand corner of a card implies a call. 

Turning the upper left comer, congratulations. 

Turning the lower right corner, adieu. 

Turning the lower left corner, condolence. 

Turning the entire left end, a call on the family. 

R. vS. V. P. means "Please answer.'' 

P. P. C, "To take leave." 

Not more than three cards should be left at the same time on 
members of the same family. 

Parties, Balls and Cotillions.— Although all evening parties 
are expected to include dancing, it is desirable that the word 
"Dancing" should be engraved on the card of invitation, and the 
hour of commencing. The ball is of course only for dancing, and 
always ends with a substantial supper. 

The hours mentioned in notes of invitation to balls are usually 
from half- past nine to half-past eleven, but from nine to half- past 
nine are the more favorite hours named in notes of invitation to 
balls in New York. These notes are sent out from ten to twenty 
days in advance of the festivity, always by post, unless the lady 
writing is sure of her messenger. The party note or card is issued 
about a week or ten days prior to the appointed evening. 



144 Houston Blue Book. 

The ball demands the fullest of toilets which the season 
admits of for both ladies and gentlemen. Supper is usually served 
about half-past twelve o'clock. Light refreshments, such as tea, 
coffee, chocolate, lemonade, and bouillon, and also punches and 
wines, should be accessible during the entire evening. 

The hostess sends out her invitations to either ball or party 
after calling bv card or in person upon all her proposed guests to 
whom she is socially indebted. They are handsomely engraved 
in script, and issued in her own name for a ball, but in both her 
own and her husband's name for a party. 

The following is the fashionable formula for the ball : 

Mrs. Albert Morgan 

Requests the pleasure of your presence on 

Thursday evening, December tenth. 

at half-past nine o'clock. 

Dancing No. — Polk Avenue, 

The partv invitation not only indicates an earlier hour tor 
arriving, but instead of the simple word "Dancing" in the left 
hand corner, it may be engraved, "Dancing at eleven." > 

Of course this invitation must be accepted or declined within 

two or three davs after its reception. The form of acceptance or 

regret is written in the name or names of the party invited: 

Mr. And Mrs. Frederick Smithfield 

Accept with pleas tire [or decline with sincere regret) 

Mrs. Farquhar Alexander's 

Kind invitation of January third. 

No. — Rusk Avenue. 

The wife enters the drawing-room on her husband's right arm, 
or the eldest lady occupies this position, provided the lady be not 
married, and there being more than one lady accompanying the 
gentleman. It is "becoming more and more the custom for the 
lady to enter the ball room unassisted. 

When passing into or out of an apartment, the lady precedes 
the gentleman by a step, unless she retains his arm. 

The guests find friends after greeting the hostess, until young 
ladies are engaged for the dance. When applying for the honor of 
dancing with a young lady, it is done with a polite recognition ot 
the office and authority of the chaperon on the part of the gentle- 
man who asks the pleasure. 

The gentleman returns the lady directly to the care of her mar- 
ried or older ladv friend as soon as the dance is finished. He may 
linger here to converse with her if he desire, but the rules of best 
societv do not permit of his doing so elsewhere. If he takes the 
yonng lady to the dining-room, it is customary for the chaperon to 
go with them. 



The Social Code. 145 

A gentleman is not as free as the lady at this moment. If he 
accompanies a lady or a party of ladies, he must first be certain 
they are properly attended at this important moment before he 
can offer his services to others. 

While the hostess is receiving, no person should remain beside 
her except the members of her family who may receive with her, 
or such as she has designated to assis't her. All persons entering 
should pass on to make room for others, those who wish to show 
her any attention seeking her later, when she is disengaged. 

Ceremonious leave-taking at balls is not necessary, unless the 
hostess or some member of the family is conveniently near at the 
moment of departure. Gentlemen who go from one ball to another 
on the same night, as in London, dispense entirely with the for- 
mality. 

These formalities of a private ball apply also to a public enter- 
tainment for dancing, and they must be followed in the latter case 
with even severe strictness. 

Calls after a ball are made on the hostess on the first of her 
regular reception days after receiving her hospitalities, or 
after having been compelled to decline the hospitality. If she 
have no fixed reception day, a card should be left for her within 
ten days after the entertainment. 

Dinners and Dining Out. — The lady who proposes giving a 
dinner makes a catalogue of all those whom she desires to invite 
to her house. From these she selects and groups those whom she 
thinks will be agreeable to one another from similarity of tastes, 
station, age, or habits. Mental accomplishments should, and they 
do at the present day, enter largely into the selection. 

When a dinner is given in honor of some one not unmistak- 
ably famous, the choice of guests is comparatively easy, those who 
are not invited understanding the reason to be the lack of affilia- 
tion with the chief guest, and therefore forbearing all inquiries 
regarding the reason. 

It is customary for those who give dinners often to have cards 
of invitation engraved, with blanks for names and dates. On an 
extra card, in the same envelope, snould be the following form: 

To meet 

Mr. Clive NewcoME 

of Galveston. 

The replies should be immediate, so that vacancies may be 
filled. If there is the slightest doubt about being able to be pres- 
ent, the invitation must be declined. If it be accepted, and an 
unsurmountable obstacle comes in between the guest and the din- 
ner, instant explanations must be made, as an empty chair at a 
feast is a depressing object, and usually leaves some lady without 
an escort, or some gentleman alone. 

Invitations to a dinner are given in the name of both host and 
hostess. If it be an engraved card or note, the name of the host and 



146 



Houston Bj.uk Book. 



hostess occupies one line, extending - across the card; the request 
follows, in smaller script, with the name cf the invited person. or 
persons written across in a blank space arranged by the engraver. 
Below this are the date and hour of the dinner. 

The word "company" is used in an invitation to dinner, but 
'presence" is preferred in a card that invites a guest to a wedding. 
The day of the week is written in letters, but the day of the month 
may be in numerals if preferred. 

An engraved request sent to an acquaintance is usually in the 
following form: 

Mr. and Mrs. Horace Walbridge 
Request the pleasure of 

Com pa ny 

A t Dinner on 

189 . . , at o'clock. 

No. — Texas Avenue. 

If a note is engraved, a monogram or crest may be placed at 
the middle of the top of the sheet. If a card is used, it is in better 
form to place this device only on the envelop. Monograms and 
ciphers f.re oftener used than crests in this country. 

The engraved form of invitation to a dinner given in honor of 
a noted person reads: 

Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Renfrew 

Request the pleasure of 



Company on Tuesday, 

January 21st, at seven o'clock, to meet the 

Hon. Mr. and Mrs. Haverstick. 

No. — Crawford Street. 

The following form is used as a prompt response: 

Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Bentley 

Accept with pleasure 

M> and Mrs. Ernest Renfrew' s invitation to dinner 

At seven o'clock Tuesday evening, 

January 21st. 

A response should express a feeling of disappointment as 
follows : 



Thk Social Codk. 147 

Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Bentley 

Regret that a previous engagement 

[or illness, or some misfortune"] 

Prevents the acceptance op' 

Mr. and Mrs. Renfrew's invitation 

For Thursday, fanuary joth. 

The degree of intimacy of the acquaintance regulates, to a 
certain extent, the form of the reply. Regret is always presumed 
to be genuine. 

Guests should arrive punctually from five to ten minutes before 
the dinner hour, the hostess in all probability not being able to 
receive them earlier. I^ater than this does not allow proper time 
for introductions and the arrangement of escorts. 

If the guests know one another, cards can be handed on a tray 
by a servant at the door. He selects the one with his own and a 
lady's name, and after greeting the hostess, seeks his partner, 
and awaits the announcement of dinner. If the guests are un- 
acquainted, the hostess suggests to each gentleman his partner, 
presents him, and tells him whether his place at table is at the 
right or left of the hostess. 

Cards, either plain or ornamental, according to the taste or 
ceremoniousness of the dinner, are laid at each lady's and gentle- 
man's plate with their names upon them. The menu card is 
usually hidden beneath it. 

The dinner is announced by the chief waiter, who stands at 
the entrance of the drawing-room, which opens toward the dining- 
room, and bows to the host. The latter is alert, anticipating the 
information. He offers his left arm to the lady-in-chief for this 
particular occasion. She may be the wife of the eldest gentleman 
or the especially honored guest, as before explained. He proceeds 
first, and his guests follow him to the dining-room, his wife enter- 
ing last with the gentleman entitled to most consideration. Kach 
pair find their assigned position by the card which awaits them, 
assisted by the information previously furnished by the host in 
regard to the side of the table chosen for them. This is done as 
quietly as possible, as nothing is less elegant than a bustling 
manner. 

When the dinner is over, the hostess bows to the lady at the 
right of the host, rises, and the guests rise also. The gentlemen 
either stand until the ladies leave, or conduct them to the door, 
and return. It is good form but not incumbent to escort the ladies 
to the drawing-room. The gentlemen smoke in the dining-room, 
or in an apartment provided for that purpose, not remaining long 
from the drawing-room. 

Coffee is served at table after the dessert, or in the drawing- 
room half an hour later. In the latter case, the hostess usually 
sits by the coffee-urn, and the gentlemen may carry the coffee- 



Houston Beue Book. 



cups to the ladles, followed by a servant, who bears a tray upon 
which are sugar, cream, and often a handsome, low, cut-glass 
caraffe of brandy. 

Guests may leave after coffee, and should not in any event lin- 
ger more than two hours. A person desiring to leave before the 
rest, should inform the hostess beforehand, and then leave with- 
out formal adieu. 

Etiquette requires a call upon the hostess within a week after 
the dinner, or before, if she have a stated reception day sooner. 
If the reception day is not convenient, cards can be left in person 
(the right side or the right-hand upper corner turned over) for 
each grown member of the family. 

Breakfasts, Luncheons and Suppers. — The hour for giving a 
breakfast varies, according to its formality, from half- past nine 
till twelve, the latter hour being only allowable where elegance 
rather than sociability is studied. Macauley said: "Dinnerpar- 
ties are mere formalities; but you invite a man to breakfast 
because you want to see him." Both gentlemen and ladies may 
be guests at the breakfast table, but ladies only usually receive 
invitations to a luncheon party. The breakfast is more social 
and enjoyable than dinner. 

Invitations to breakfast, not too formal, are written, and need 
not be issued more than five days in advance of an entertainment. 

The style of the note may be quite as informal as any brief but 
friendly letter, or it may be the lady's visiting card which con- 
veys the request, if this card be engraved after the customary form 
prevailing in New York, with the address in the right-hand lower 
corner, and the ordinary day for receiving callers upon the left. 
Below the lady's name may be written: 

BREAKFAST AT TEN O'CLOCK. 

January ioth. 

If another than the usual "at home" day be preferred, an ink 
line may be drawn through the eugraved day of the week, and the 
following form is written upon the card: 

BREAKFAST FRIDAY, AT TEN O'CLOCK. 

January ioth. 

Numerals are witten upon a card, but they are not engraved, 
except it be the number of the residence. 

This breakfast should never be elaborate, but it cannot be too 
dainty in its food, or in the appointments of the table. Walking 
costumes are worn by both gentlemen and ladies, also visiting 
gloves, which are removed at table. The descent from the dress- 
ing-room, and greetings between hostess and guest, are just the 
same as at a dinner party. 

If there are more than eight guests, cards should be placed 
indicating places. If the guests be unequal in number, ladies are 



The Social Code. 149 

informed of their lady partners by the hostess, and they seek their 
assigned places as usual. 

The host conducts to the table the eldest lady, or the one who 
as a bride or for any other reason is entitled to special consider- 
ation. If there be no host the lady of the house leads the way, 
accompanied by the most honored guest, lady or gentleman. 

Guests are expected to leave half an hour after the breakfast 
is over. 

Formal breakfasts require elaborate but not full dress for 
ladies; a morning or frock coat for gentlemen, with light-colored 
trousers, and waistcoat to correspond with the coat. 

The general directions for descent to the dining-room, the con- 
duct of the host and guests, are the same as for dinner. 

The general rules regulating a breakfast apply equally well to 
a luncheon. 

After a very formal breakfast, a call on the hostess is expected, 
according to rules given elsewhere. An informal breakfast requires 
no after-call 

Suppers are presumed to be for gentlemen only, and are served 
from nine to ten o'clock. The informalities of invitation are all 
of the same kind. The invitation may be verbal, or like this: 

SUPPER AT TEN O'CLOCK. 

Sa t u rday , J a n u ary 25th. 

Etiquette of Weddings. — Strict form does not require the an- 
nouncement of an engagement, but a betrothal may be made 
known to friends in some pleasant manner, either by a dinner 
party at the home of the bride, or at the home of the groom, at 
which the immediate family of the bride must be present. 

Compliments by notes, gifts of flowers, and calls upon the 
lady, follow. 

During the term of betrothal, little parties may be given to 
the engaged couple by their immediate circle of friends, at which 
they may appear and receive friendly congratulations. This is 
sufficient as an announcement of the formal engagement. 

The intended bride foregoes visiting during the brief interval 
presumed to elapse between the engagement and the wedding, 
except that she leaves a card in person at the residence of all her 
friends, without entering, just before the da3' of the ceremony. 
The last call is one not to be omitted. 

Thfc wedding cards are sent out at least ten days before the 
ceremony is to take place. Invitations to remote places must be 
forwarded sooner. 

The invitations to the marriage ceremony are in the name of 
the bride's father and mother, or of one alone, if only one be liv- 
ing. If the bride stands in the relationship of ward, niece, grand- 
daughter, cousin, or simply friend, to the person or persons issu- 
ing the invitation, the fact is noted in the formula in place of the 
word "daughter." 



i.5o Houston Blue Book. 

Accompanying- the engraved note is a card of invitation to the 
reception for such persons as are entitled to be bidden to partake 
of the festivities of the occasion. 

Invitations to weddings are engraved on one sheet of paper, 
the separate cards of the bride or groom being seldom used. The 
engraving is in plain script. The paper is thick, fine, and shaped 
so as to fold once. The cipher, monogram, or crest, should be at 
the middle of the top of the page, and not printed in color. It is 
now thought to be in better st\ le to put the device on the envelop, 
instead of on the note. The following is a suitable formula: 

MR. AND MRS. CHARTS REMINGTON 

Req u est yo /<r p? -ese n ce 

At the marriage of /heir daughter, 

MISS MARIA LOUISA, 

to 

MR. WILLIAM HENRY JAMESON, 

On Tuesday morning, September seventh, 1896, 

at eleven o'clock. 

Christ Church, Houston. 

The word "presence" is considered preferable to "company." 
Another card is enclosed for more familiar friends. The fol- 
lowing is good form for the invitation to the reception: 

MR. AND MRS. CHARLES REMINGTON, 

At Home, 

Tuesday morning, September seventh, from 

half- past eleven until four o'clock. 

No. — Capitol Avenue. 

The admission card is narrow, long and neatly and plainty 
engraved in script: 

CHRIST CHURCH, 

Ceremony at eleven o'clock. 

The portion of the ceremony not absolutely fixed by the 
church may be tastefully varied by the parties interested. For 
an elaborate wedding, rehearsals are desirable. 

The master of ceremonies should be early present to see that 
the awnings and carpets are not disturbed by idlers. He sees that 
the white ribbon is parsed across the main aisle at a sufficient dis- 
tance from the altar to accommodate the invited guests. 



The Social Code. 151 



- The following modern ceremonial is considered good in New 
York : The bridesmaids and an equal number of ushers are chosen 
from among the friends of families. The ushers wait inside the 
church door, give their arms to the ladies as they arrive, and 
escort them to their seats. The gentlemen who attend the ladies 
follow. 

When the bridal party has arranged itself for entrance, the 
ushers, in pairs, march slowly up to the altar, and turn to the 
right, keeping step to the organ music. After a very slight inter- 
val, the bridesmaids follow in pairs, and turn to the left. 

Another very brief inteival of waiting, and the bride, escorted 
by her father, and entirely veiled, with her eyes cast down, fol- 
lows her companions. The groom comes forward from the vestry 
room to meet her, takes her hand, and places her at the altar. 
Both kneel for a moment's silent devotion. The parents stand 
just behind her, and slightly to the left. The service by the clergy- 
man now proceeds as usual. 

The bridal veil is rarely raised in church, and kissing in the 
public place is obsolete. 

The bridesmaids follow the bride and groom out, each on the 
arm of an usher. The ushers then hasten to the place of recep- 
' tion, to welcome the bride at her own door, and to arrange them- 
selves about the bride and groom, in the drawing-room, half the 
bridesmaids standing on the side of the bride, and half on the side 
of the groom. The ushers wait at the door of the drawing-room 
for guests as they arrive from church, and present them to the 
newly wedded pair. If ladies are present without gentlemen, 
they escort them to the refreshment room, afterward leaving them 
to provide for themselves. 

Bridal gifts are seldom displayed. If they are shown it is 
with the names of the donors detached, to prevent invidious com- 
parisons. The universal bridal present is a disused custom. The 
bride acknowledges the gift by a note in her own hand. 

If the newly- married begin house-keeping at once, cards are 
issued for morning or evening 1 eceptions at no distant day, to 
which only such persons are invited as they desire to retain as 
friends. The following form of card will do: 

MR. AND MRvS. WILLIAM HENRY JAMESON, 

At Home, 

Tuesday evenings in November , from eight 

to eleven o'clock. 

No. — McKinney Avenue. 

On these occasions an elaborate table is not considered in 
refined taste. The bride wears a reception toilet, and the groom 
is in full evening dress. After an informal wedding, and to be sent 
to distant friends, cards are prepared in the following form and 
sent by post: 



152 Houston Blue Book. 

MR. AND MRS. CHARGES REMINGTON 

Announce the marriage of their daughter, 

MISS MARIA LOUISA, 

and 

MR. ALBERT SIDNEY JOHNSTON, 

Tuesday, October 5th, 1896. 

No. — Lamar Avenue, Houston. 

In response to this, a note of congratulation is usually sent to 
the parents of the bride, and also to the bridal pair, if the intimacy 
of the parties warrants it. 

If there has been no reception, and a reception follows their 
return to town, even though the young people take possession of 
their own house, the mother of the bride usually gives one to them. 
If it be given only in the evening, cards should be issued in the 
name of the parents and the young people, and the two cards sent 
in the same envelop. 

Weddings at home vary little from those at churches. An altar, 
a place for kneeling, and floral devices, are easily arranged. When 
the marriage ceremony is concluded, the party turn in their places 
and face their friends, who wait to congratulate them. 

Calls or card leaving by all the guests, upon the family of the 
bride, is a rigorous formality within ten days after the wedding. 

Opera and Theatre Parties. — Such entertainments are suscep- 
tible of giving the most thorough social enjoyment. In New York 
they have become very popular of late, being confined almost alto- 
gether to the upper tendom. They are sometimes given by fam- 
ilies, but most frequentty they are projected by young bach- 
elors who have no homes to which they can invite guests, and who 
are desirious in some such agreeable way to return the hospitali- 
ties and courteous treatment of householders. 

Theatre Etiquette for Gentlemen. — In inviting a lady to the 
theatre, opera, a concert, or any other public place of amusement, 
send the invitation the day previous to the one selected for taking 
her, and write it in the third person. If it is the first time, include 
her mother, sister, or some other lady, in the invitation. 

If she accepts the invitation, see that good seats are secured; 
for it is but a poor compliment to invite a lady to go to a place of 
amusement, and put her in an uncomfortable seat, where she can 
neither hear, see, nor be seen — especially the latter. 

Punctuality. — In conclusion, it may be well to observe that, in 
this "eager, sesthetical, ethical age," punctuality is as necessary in 
social life as in business, and applies alike tb the obligations, 
duties, engagements and pleasures of polite society.

Introduction. 



The publisher and those who have assisted 
him in the collection of much of the data com- 
prising this volume have frequently been met 
with the query, what is a " Blue Book? n This 
work is the answer. 

Having been mistaken for book agents, 
received as such by many, and denied an inter- 
view by others whom it was absolutely neces- 
sary to see in order to obtain data needed in the 
preparation of the "Calling and Address List," a 
feature peculiar to this work, the issuance of this 
volume has been delayed longer than was anti- 
cipated. Such delay is, however, in no way 
the fault of the publisher or his printers. 

The Blue Book is a necessity in metropolitan 
life, because it forms the only reliable social 
guide for well-regulated households. It is a 



Galveston Blue Book. 



useful and concisely tabulated compendium of 
all social functions, and is as necessary in the 
home as the business directory is in the office or 
store, and all intelligent individuals who con- 
sider the duties of life worth observance provide 
themselves with such a book of reference. 

In every fin de siecle city of both Europe and 
America a Blue Book is given a welcome place 
in all the best families. It finds no lodgment 
elsewhere. 

It is not intended that this work shall be a list 
of "blue bloods," nor does the publisher desire 
to figure as a social censor, but being familiar 
with such publications elsewhere, and believing 
the social life of the two cities needs such an aid 
because of the fast approaching metropolitan 
proportions and ideas of each, the work was 
undertaken and is now presented to its patrons. 

The publisher gratefully acknowledges the 
promptness and kindness with which many who 
have seen and known elsewhere the benefits and 
conveniences of a Blue Book have come to his 



Introduction. 



assistance and by personal letters of approval, 
and otherwise, have aided and encouraged the 
publication. 

The special "Calling and Address List" con- 
tains a majority of residents, it is believed, who 
are entitled to the claim and recognition of 
"society," if such a fixed fact there be. 
"Society" is altogether too elastic and flexible 
for the attainment of perfection in this list. Its 
representation, however, is as select, complete 
and correct as careful inquiry under existing 
conditions can make an attempt of the kind. If 
there are any, and undoubtedly there are many, 
entitled to mention herein whose names by 
chance have been omitted, it must be attributed 
rather to the extraordinary difficulties attending 
the obtaining oi data, than to any idea of exclu- 
sion. In each recurring edition the objects and 
purports of a Blue Book will be better under- 
stood and a more perfect and satisfactory repre- 
sentation reached. Margins have been left for 
additions and interlineations of the names, ad- 



Galveston Blue Book, 



dresses, etc., of friends not found herein. The 
4 'Social Code" may prove a pleasant reminder to 
polite memory and gentle breeding. 

The publisher desires especially to call the 
attention of the patrons of this book to the names 
and firms mentioned herein under the caption 
of "Business Reference" with the hope and the 
wish that a close and continued acquaintance 
may be mutually profitable and pleasureable. 

This is the first Blue Book ever issued in the 
State of Texas. The publisher hopes that it 
may find the friends here that similar volumes 
have ever found in enterprising cities. It is 
copyrighted and will appear annually, or as 
often as the growth and changes of the city may 
make its' publication advisable.
